There is nothing worse than spending a long time making a recipe and then only one person likes it - which is usually me! These banana recipes below are enjoyed by everyone in our family, so they are worth making time and time again. I hope your family likes them, just as much as mine...

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Add remaining ingredients. Spoon mixture into muffin tray and bake for 20 25 minutes.
